Link to this video webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Canada's universities are becoming truly global, and when an unthinkable assault happens to a student from abroad, we need to ask the questions we would if she were a Canadian citizen: How could this happen? Why? What can be done to make sure it never happens to anyone else? This timely discussion took place at St. John's College Lecture Hall. Panelist of this special panel, "Justice for Rumana Monzur -- A Debate about violence against women from a legal and global perspective" include:
Louisa Russell (Vancouver Rape Relief & Women's Shelter)
Dr. Susan Boyd (Professor of Law, Chair in Feminist Legal Studies at UBC)
Dr. Janine Benedet (Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law at UBC)
Dr. Tyseer Aboulnasr (Dean, Faculty of Applied Science, Professor, Electrical Engineering, UBC)
Moderator: Dr. Patricia Vertinsky (Professor, School of Human Kinetics, UBC)
